Can't wait to dive into the buffet of new features iOS 6 is going to deliver tomorrow? Well, here are some snacks to hold you over, courtesy of Twitter. This morning, the company announced a slew of updates to its mobile apps, including a spiffy new profile page and interface for the iPad.
Ever since Steve Jobs first praised Pulse at the iPad’s launch event, the highly attractive app has become its news aggregator of choice. Stylish, slick and still devilishly simple to use, Pulse gathers all your news-feeds into one place, offering you a snapshot of the day’s biggest stories.
A text editor is not a word processor--the role of TextWrangler is to slice and dice words and spaces (and code) with great power and flexibility, not to produce finished, gussied-up documents. And none of the new features in version 4.0 makes TextWrangler any more suitable for designing cute party invites.
iMovie makes it really easy to create great-looking home-movies in minutes, and that includes giving them a more polished and professional edge. There are several ways to do this, including with titles and credits, and so, it shouldn’t come as any surprise, that iMovie has many titling options under its belt.
There are plenty of ways to share audio online, but one place stands out as a service for the rest of us and not just professionals. SoundCloud was launched in 2008 by a sound designer and artist, with the aim of enabling musicians to share sounds and recordings with one another.
Apple’s iLife is an amazing suite of applications designed to bring out the creative in you. You can make a movie with iMovie, perform a song with GarageBand and keep track of your photos with iPhoto. But while making music and home videos is time consuming, practically everyone who owns a Mac takes photos.

Picture files come in all sorts of formats such as JPEG and TIFF. Each has its own individual strengths, but it’s common to need to change the format of one or more images. For example, you might need to convert a sizable TIFF file into a smaller JPEG to email it to someone. Doing this manually -- even for a single file -- takes time, so we’re going to show you how to set up an automated process for converting one or more image files from one format to another. The input files can be in BMP, GIF, JPEG, PDF, PICT, PNG or TIFF format. All you’ll need to do is drop the files’ icons onto an app in your Mac’s Dock and they’ll be converted to the format you’ve specified.
Like a few other apps we could name (ahem, Instagram), Pinterest remains mired in a pocket-sized mindset, stuck on our iPhones and iPods or simply blown up for our iPad. With all the great visuals posted to the popular social media site, we'd love it if there were a better way of interacting with our accounts than simply using Safari and a bookmarket.

Luckily, some third-party options are available to make Pinterest available in a native manner on the iPad, so here are some suggestions about how to get the best out of your pinning on Apple's big screen.
